    That industry has done everything possible to make their product appear harmless.

    Of course they have and they seem to be succeeding. Many of the "no corn sweetener" products in the grocery stores are slowly disappearing although cost may have a lot to do with that. Corn sweetened products are generally cheaper than sugar sweetened products.

    Corn is government subsidized. And in addition corn syrup is also subsidized.
    It was long ago a chosen crop to hold down food prices.

    Corn has not been subsidized for over a decade.

    Corn Syrup is domestic & cheap. Nutritional value is the same as sugar (bad).

    If it's that great it wouldn't need the government to protect it from sugar's competition.

    Of course they are and it will for the most part work out the way they want it to.
